    Question Affordable cut-resistant gloves?

    Have people here found a good affordable pair of gloves which are cut/puncture resistant for pulling scrap out of dumpsters? Found these bad boys online:


    Heavy-duty Split-Leather Stainless Steel-Stapled Gloves with Gauntlet Cuffs


    but they're $95/pair at Amazon.com...looking for something cheaper.

    I got a pair of cheap Catapillar leather work gloves (on close-out) and for general scrapping I use a pair of brown Jersey gloves. I think those are 3/$2.00 at the dollar stores. Their not accident proof but for general breaking electronic crap down they keep the nicks and scratches off the hands.

    those gloves look awesome, amazon is usually at least fair on their prices, the article said the military uses them to handle razor wire so maybe try a military surplus store. we all wear greasemonkey mechanics gloves for the most part and ive got miller leather welding gloves but we don't dive in many dumpsters either

    you peaked my interest, here are some similar for $30 they don't look quite as nice, remember your given two of everything you really need but we don't need to lose one of them, buy the best you can afford when it comes to safety

    my last pair just came from Atwood's, Says Kinco 1600 on the cuffs. They've got leather fingers and part canvas, part leather cuff. They've got a double leather palm, thumb, and pointing finger. Closest I could find to the 20 something worn out pair I'd left at home that day, and found myself needing some "now" They're probly made in China, or Bangledesh : ( but seem to be a suitable replacement for the ones I stretched barbed wire and mended fences with for so long

    I use these:
    Grease Monkey, Cut Resisant Gloves, 25089-06 at The Home Depot - Mobile
    They may be the same as what Cory was talking about. These are AWESOME! Someone gave them to me as a christmas gift and they are still going strong. I actually need to get another pair. They are very cut resistant.

    we got three different ones, we have red ones that look like the one in your pic with the rubber palms and fingers, leather ones with a Velcro strap and they have a winter version that's blue, I cant remember cut resistant being on the tag but they are good gloves

    I cant find the ones I have with the Velcro on homedepot, im pretty sure I picked them up at samsclub tho

    The cut-resistant glove I would like to suggest using is the high-performance and high-grade pair offered by NoCry. They are useful to you
